Australian professional basketball player Ben Simmons has decided to call time on his , listing the abode for $US22. 99 million ($32. 3 million).
Set in the celebrity enclave of , Simmons’ contemporary digs are just about what you’d expect from a man as enigmatic, and at times controversial, as the 25-year-old point guard.
Boasting seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a total internal footprint spanning a scarcely believable 1115-square-metres, the bona fide is replete with opulent and unique features.
Benefits include a grand lounge hall with vaulted ceilings and marble floors, home theatre with candy bar, a massive master suite, professional kitchen and a lush living area with a floating fireplace.
Outside, the manicured grounds have an expansive swimming pool and complementing pool house, extensive motor court and even a secluded guest house, which comes with its own smaller swimming pool.
The Brooklyn Nets player mustn’t have liked his palatial digs that much, though, because according to , Simmons is selling the property less than one year after purchasing it.
And the kicker? The former Melburnian is asking $US5. 5 million ($A7. 75 million) more than he paid for the avant-garde pad in June last year.
If the lofty asking price can be realised, that’ll be a significant payday for the NBA player, but with an annual salary thought to be worth roughly $40 million per year, not including sponsorship deals, the profit from the home may feel like a drop in the ocean.
